The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences c. 205-184 bce, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Moli re to modern times. This fifth volume of a new Loeb edition of all twenty-one of Plautus's extant comedies presents Stichus, Three-Dollar Day, Truculentus, The Tale of a Traveling-Bag, and fragments with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes.
